Sony Electronics introduced the full-frame E-mount 20-70mm F4 G (model: SEL2070G) boasting a versatile zoom range, a remarkably compact and lightweight form-factor, and a constant F4 aperture throughout the zoom range, the company said. With impressive Sony G Lens image quality, high-speed accuracy and tracking autofocus (AF), and a smart design for maximum mobility and operability, this new lens is designed for a wide range of creators.
The new FE 20-70mm F4 G will be available in March 2023 for approximately $1,099 USD and $1,499 CAD.
“The FE 20-70mm F4 G is our 71st E-mount lens and is redefining the standard zoom in our G Lens category to meet the needs to today’s content creators,” said Yang Cheng, Vice President, Imaging Solutions, Sony Electronics Inc. “Having tools that creators can utilize to create both still and video content is ever more important. The FE 20-70mm F4 G ranges from 20mm to 70mm in a compact form factor – this is an excellent lens option for hybrid content creators and those seeking versatility in a standard zoom.”
The company says the key benefit of a zoom lens that includes a 20mm offering is its ability to maintain a wide-angle-of-view when shooting video with a 16:9 or 2.35:1 aspect ratio. The wide-angle also provides content creators with additional flexibility to crop their frames in the post-production process to increase the effectiveness of image stabilization.
The FE 20-70mm F4 G has a minimum focus distance of up to 11.8” (30 cm) at the wide end and up to 9.8” (25 cm) at the telephoto end of the zoom range when using AFii, making it easy to maneuver around subjects to find the ideal angle.
The FE 20-70mm F4 G has a dust and moisture resistant designix and the front lens element features a fluorine coating that repels fingerprints, dust, water, oil, and other contaminants
